for attacks against the united states. >> thank you. let me just conclude by saying that former cia director mike hayden used used the analogy of a football field, the lines on the football field, and he talked about our intelligence operatives and others as the players on the field. and he said we need them to get chalk on their cleats, go right up to the line in carrying out what our approved policies of the united states. and if you think about it that way, it is really important to have policies that are transparent so that those who are carrying out the mission and those in the united states and those around the world who are trying to understand the mission know where the lines are. if we don't know what the lines are, some people will be risk averse, other people commit excesses. we have certain seeing a few of those, which are black eyes on our country. so i just want to applaud the fact that john brennan has come over here from the white house, spent over an hour with us, laying out in great detail what the rules are for something that has been revealed today, which is the use of dr

that would bind the united states. and by doing so in a way that is never submitted for congressional specifically senate approval that just keeps congress out of the loop and unable to have its proper role in these issues. and why it's so important, mr. chairman, is because there are significant policy and operational concerns with the e.u. code of conduct or something that resembles it with regard to our security. for instance an unclassified excerpt from the executive summary of the joint staff operations assessment of the draft e.u. code said if the united states were to make a good faith effort at implementing the requirements of the draft code there could be operations impacts on u.s. military space operations in several areas, up quote. and i have no doubt, mr. chairman, that attempting to comply with something like the e.u. code of conduct would impact our space operations. we would be doing things or not doing things that would otherwise not happen. becoming a signatory on this type of code of conduct without congressional approval appears intended to implement international
